Presidents cannot pardon crimes committed against a STATE, and I see this as the first of many STATE charges that will be leveled against Lemontop and his top advisors, charges that cannot be wiped away with the POTUS pen and will introduce the Trump family and associates to another "pen" - the State Pen.

 

Three Cheers for New York!


Don't get too excited. This is a civil action not a criminal indictment.


True it's Tort and not criminal, BUT there's a "gentleman's agreement" between States and the Federal Government that they will not BOTH charge a perp with the same crime even though it's their RIGHT to do so, each being "an offended soverign" with a right to demand satisfaction. They didn't charge lemontop's munchkins with criminal acts because either Mueller already has or they suspect he will.

 

Should Mueller decide Trumpers promise to use pardons to obstruct justice are going to let the guilty go free, Mueller simply won't recommend the act for prosecution at the Federal level and allow the involved State to bring the charges which Der Trumper CANNOT pardon.

 

So you see, SOME excitement is in order for those who love Freedom and Democracy - not so much for those who support Der Trumper no matter how egregeous his crimes and disgusting his behavior.

New York files suit against President Trump, alleging his charity engaged in ‘illegal conduct’

 

The New York attorney general on Thursday filed suit against President Trump and his three eldest children alleging “persistently illegal conduct” at the president’s personal charity, saying Trump repeatedly misused the nonprofit — to pay off his businesses’ creditors, to decorate one of his golf clubs and to stage a multimillion dollar giveaway at his 2016 campaign events.

 

In the suit, filed Thursday morning, attorney general Barbara Underwood asked a state judge to dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation. She asked that its remaining $1 million in assets be distributed to other charities and that Trump be forced to pay at least $2.8 million in restitution and penalties.

 

Underwood also asks that Trump be banned from leading any other New York nonprofit for 10 years — seeking to apply a penalty usually reserved for the operators of small-time charity frauds to the president of the United States.

 

In the suit, Underwood noted that Trump had already paid more than $330,000 in reimbursements and penalty taxes since 2016. New York state began probing the Trump Foundation in response to an investigation by The Washington Post.

 

But she asked the judge to go further, and require Trump to pay millions more. She said a 20-month state investigation found that Trump had repeatedly violated laws that set the ground rules for tax-exempt foundations — most importantly, that their money is meant to serve the public good, and not to provide private benefits to their founders.
